Exporting Settings from Microsoft Office Communications Server gives error 0x80041010

July 9th, 2008 by Jabez Gan [MVP]

I was exporting the settings for Microsoft Office Communications Server today, using the command line tool LCSCMD.exe.

The output was:

Executing “Export Configuration”
Executing “Validate File”
Executing “Establish WMI Connections”
Check the log file “C:\DOCUME~1\ADMINI~1.OCS\LOCALS~1\Temp\export[2008_07_09][15_39_26].html” for details.
ERROR (0x80041010):

On opening the log file, I was presented with the following helpful unhelpful log file.

Thanks to Google, I searched using the error as the keyword and found out that this error means “An error message of 0x80041010 means that you are trying to reference a WMI class that does not exist.”

The syntax that I used was:

lcscmd /config /action:export /level:machine /configfile:c:\backup\ocsserversettings.xml /fqdn:ocs.blizhosting.com

Where it should be:

lcscmd /config /action:export /level:machine /configfile:c:\backup\ocsserversettings.xml /fqdn:member01.ocs.blizhosting.com

Stupid me… Duh!!

But I think the error in the log file should be more helpful tho.
